The Tipoff to Panorama Point Professional Review and Guide
"The stretch of the South Kaibab Trail from the Tipoff to the Kaibab Suspension Bridge predated the 1925 construction of the trail. Known as the Cable Trail, the old (much steeper) trail descended from the Tonto Platform to the Colorado River, where a cable stretched across the river—the only dry route across before the first bridge was constructed in 1921."
